Symantec PWN Again.

The Following TiD explains it;

However I have seen this on none-Exchange servers, and on BackupExec 12 servers also.

Basically to check for it, pop into task manager, enable the “Virtual Memory Usage” column, and see how much the beremote.exe is using.

It “should” be 30mb (or there abounts)

Answer;

Write a batch file to restart the service and schedule it every night.

Good job Symantec!!
